Cullen Breen (CRD #: 5818590), a broker formerly registered with LPL Financial, allegedly engaged in excessive trading, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on May 2, 2023. Read on if you have questions about his alleged conduct as a broker.

Pending Civil Suit

On March 21, 2023, an investor filed a civil suit alleging that Cullen Breen engaged in excessive trading in their managed account. This suit is currently pending.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to take investors’ profiles into account when recommending investments. These profiles contain information such as investors’ tax status, risk tolerance, and investment goals.

Investments can also be quantitatively unsuitable. Excessive trading generates fees and commissions that can cut into clients’ returns so severely that the investor doesn’t make a profit.

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
